:asif where in NY are you from?

I've played tape ball in Conney island, pretty serious stuff, majority are charged up yellow cab drivers and chauffeurs who meet up at 6 am after finishing their night shifts...plenty of galli-galoch!

quite funny though seeing a long line of yellow cabs and black Lincoln town cars parked up around a basketball court, all there to play cricket.

I live in Milwaukee and there is both a hardball and tapeball league here. The division is across the whole midwest, we've played some matches in Mundelein, IL (I think that's how you spell it). If you're interested message me mate!

I played ACC last year but this year I guess they raised the fees too high so guys left the team....Now the only chance is to play some tape ball and I am very much disappointed as compare to Houston (I used to live there) where I can find 10 different places to play cricket every Friday & Saturday

It's a big caged basketball court a few blocks from Conney Island and foster ave, that's all i remember.

We will be playing in Teaneck NJ on Sunday mornings between 9-12 if anyone's interested..

Midwood field has no basketball courts so that's not it. You probably played in the school yard at Coney Island and Newkirk ave.

It's a very good field although my opinion may be a bit biased because I graduated from Midwood high school and that's our field. :)

I have a cousin in Chicago and he plays tapeball cricket with about 15 other Pakistanis every Sunday. He lives in the suburbs though, quite a long drive from the city. I believe the area is called Elgin. If you guys are OK with that I can get you in contact.

Last summer when I went there I played a game, good quality cricket there.

CA has beaches and some are very nice, no question about that but you can't compare them to FL beaches. And CA is anything but relaxed. It's a rat race!
